My brain is fried and I don’t want to work. It is 15.40pm and it is grey outside. Feeling physically and emotionally tired.
I have lots to do and I just feel tired and unmotivated! What do I do?
I pat myself on the back for what I have achieved this morning – 3 major task that have been on the to do list for a few days now.
To get myself motivated without feeling overwhelmed I have set the computer timer for 20 minutes.
I will spend 20 minutes on a task that I have been avoiding for a week. This trick will help me get started and I might even work longer than 20 Minutes. Or even if I work 20 minutes only, I will feel better for doing some work on this task.
The 20 minute kick starter is officially known as the Pomodoro Technique. Click here to find out more.
* Note: you can adapt this technique to your needs, you can work for 30 mins, or 45 minutes and take a 15 minute break. The point is to get you started, and get you out of the rut of not wanting to work. Once you start with a small amount of time, you trick yourself and you don’t feel overwhelmed. Once you start then you are more likely to carry on longer. It is fabulous way to get out of rut and make progress, even if it is just 20 minutes.
I enlist the help of coffee, vegan chocolate cake and a mango sauce.
